Slar says - I decided to come back and give this run another go since it was pretty hard for me last time. Did it in 28:44 and a total of 2.72 miles with 572 calories burned. Did the work intervals at 6.5 mph. No cramps and no problems with my shins this time. I seem to remember this run giving me some sore shins when I planted my feet last time. I'd say this is good progress for 5 months!

Slar says - I forgot to mention that I used Dan's technique of using heartrate to determine how long the rest intervals should be. Rest intervals wound up being around 2:15 to get down to 110 bpm.
